Pre-Production: Laying the Groundwork
By definition, pre-production is anything that happens before the day of a shoot. And if you do it right, your shoot day should go very smoothly. Pre-production meetings are the meetings where all of your planning is accomplished. They may not be as lengthy as the Papal conclave, but there is a lot of subject matter to cover. They are an imperative part of the entire project so that you can make sure you get everything you need or want out of the images.

The Rainey Institute
As a Cleveland based company, we feel it is extremely important to be fully immersed in our community, from other local businesses, to our sports teams, and to our charitable organizations.

This non-profit organization is a community center dedicated to tapping into young minds through the world of the arts.
A Peek Inside a TRG Reality Photographer's Camera Bag
Last week, we wrote about the oft-disputed debate between Nikon and Canon photography gear. We can’t say one is definitively better than the other, but what we can say is that producing terrific photography is about more than having the right gear. It’s about the artist holding the camera.
Nikon vs. Canon: Which Photography Gear is Better?
We might as well be asking, “What is the meaning of life?” The Nikon versus Canon debate has been raging for a long time, starting back when the brands were both born. Interestingly, the very first Canon camera, which was introduced in 1935, had a Nikon lens (although the brand was Nikkor at the time).

He wanted to push himself. Challenge himself. Grow. And instead of ignoring these feelings, like so many of us do, Doug made the decision to pursue a new and difficult path.
